  • Surgery to "tie" your stomach so you'll eat less.

  • It's an elective weight-loss surgery that puts a band on your stomach so you can't eat as much. It's considered safer than gastric bypass, and it's easily reversible, should you choose to not have it anymore. It still comes with its own set of issues, though. It would probably be best to ask your doctor or google it to find out more =]
